A tiny town with big tourist appeal, Pigeon Forge bills itself as the "Center of Fun in the Smokies." Just a short drive from the national park protecting the diverse plant and animal life of the Great Smoky Mountains, the town features numerous places to visit, such as bars, restaurants, cafes, theaters, and shops.
Venture out of the city with trips to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Mount LeConte & Charlies Bunion). Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Sugarlands Distilling Company, get outside with The Sinks, steep yourself in history at Walker Sisters' Cabin, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.
